New Premises for GRAF UK as business expands
In line with rapid company growth and further plans for expansion, leading European water management specialist GRAF UK has upsized its UK headquarters in Oxfordshire.
The company’s relocation to its new, 10,000 sq ft premises on Beaumont Road in Banbury reflects a need to accommodate its ever-expanding team of experts – from sales and marketing, customer services, and finance staff to installers and technical specialists. The most recent additions to GRAF’s now 24-strong team include a new accounts manager and a new operations manager, whose respective roles are to build and strengthen customer relationships and to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the business.
Matthew Rolph, managing director at GRAF UK, says: “We’ve been based in the same building since our UK launch, and after more than three years in our first office, we had well and truly outgrown it and knew it was time for an upgrade. A lot has happened in those three years – including the launch of our dedicated Scottish and Irish branches – and the business has grown 160% since 2014. We’re also seeing demand for our products continue to rise across the board, with a particular increase in wastewater treatment orders.
“Ultimately, our people and our customers are our priority, and the relocation is set to benefit both. Not only will the additional manpower allow us to better serve our growing client base, the extra space will also make for an improved working environment for the current team (and provide scope for further growth). Our experts are focused on delivering tailored advice and support at every stage of the customer journey – from design and specification right through to maintenance and aftercare. We look forward to building on this ethos in what is an exciting new chapter for the business.”
GRAF’s market-leading product ranges – spanning rainwater harvesting, wastewater treatment and stormwater management solutions – will still be kept at the previous headquarters on Thorpe Way Industrial Estate, Banbury. The company will continue to dispatch orders to customers up and down the country from this storage facility, which is just over two miles away from the team’s new base.
GRAF UK’s systems boast the highest levels of quality and enduring performance. Made in Germany at one of the world’s most modern production facilities, they are custom-designed to meet the precise requirements of individual projects and include all the components required for complete installation. The company’s stormwater, rainwater and wastewater management portfolio is matched with an accredited CPD training programme aimed at specifiers, installers and other industry professionals.
